Reminder: Diablo III Auctions End Next Month

Battle.net reminds us that the Diablo III auction houses have but one more month before being shut down on March 18th, referring further questions about this to the Diablo III Auction House Update FAQ. As for how to prepare for the change, they say they'll "be providing additional technical details regarding the shutdown including how this will affect active auctions, items in the Completed Tab, your existing Battle.net Balance, and more next week, so please stay tuned!" In the meantime, many will be collecting dirt to kick on the grave of this feature, which even Blizzard eventually admitted was a bad idea to start with.

Am I losing my mind, or didn't WoW have a trading mechanism where you put the items in and then each side has an opportunity to approve the trade? Borrow some code from across the hall? (Yes, I realize it isn't quite that easy... but the point is valid)

WoW actually has it done right because there is no real money involved outside of your monthly prescription. Blizzard wanted some kind of income out of D3 since they only made money off the initial game sale and that was the end of it.
At this point if they are smart they will incorporate WoW style auction house and leave it at that. No real money required!

I think even a RMAH could possibly be viable, we just can't trust Blizzard not to screw-up the gameplay for profit. Its like telling a dog not to eat the bacon you've dropped on the floor. They just can't help themselves.
